Subject: just "ok"
the playing in the first set is actually pretty hot at times. the second set just isn't up to the energy level of the first, and definitely not of the entire tour.
but i put up with the tape slowness, the low-end clipping, the poor house mix, but then when the nfa sped up, i had to give up, great comes a time be damned.
the only real reason to listen to it is for completeness sake. i'm going through all spring 77 shows. but like i said, had to give up half-way through nfa because it's not worth it any longer.

Since this came three days after War and five days before Alabama - two of the greatest shows in history, and since it's May '77, possibly the greatest single month, the fact that it's merely a slightly above average show is unexpected.
1st Set: B-
2nd Set: B-
Overall = 3 Stars
3 stars (2 & 1/2, or average, plus 1/2 for the above average Tennesee, Mississippi, and Samson). I'll not argue mid-maine's point about Comes a Time, though, so you should check that, too.
Mississippi stands out as special for a May '77.
Also required listening: Tennessee and a crazy-ass Samson.
SOURCES: Both the clugston and the Gatto use the same reels but the clugton6484 sounds better to me. Samson starts and somebody says "Alligator!". In 77!
Okay tape. Thanks for posting!
Subject: Minority Report
Perhaps the allure of '77 is that it is arguably the final year in which the band was reinventing itself while keeping the past alive, too. Change came more slowly after '77 (and disastrously '91), despite the shift in sound in April '79. Compare the Terrapin-> Playin' from 11-6-79 to the one, here, and then argue that this one is superior. I can't.
(Of course, the '79 Spectrum show doesn't contain the sinewy Comes a Time, which for my $.02, is the highlight of this show. Nice harmonics.)
Subject: new 77 always welcome
Subject: A Big Thank You Keith Gatto.........
Subject: comes a time
this wins, of course i've only compared the comes a time, but this of the two seems to me like where jerry's voice was, not any higher, which i believe the other one was
of course i'll have to check out more of the show, but the strength of any performance of this song earns all the stars in the know galaxies of shebaba
